My goodness, the tabloids are doing their job, not just here but in Spain as well. Not one journo is prepared to listen to Fergie who made it clear that he would not overspend in January, even thugh United's performance levels leave a lot to be desired and he probably knows that.
The most and least credible rumour prize both go to David Villa: Valencia publicly admitted that they are unlikely to hold onto him much longer amid the financial problems crippling their club, even though they are flying high in the league. The player himself backtracked from his earlier vow that he would stay in Spain and said that the important thing was for him to find the best possible club and that could be in England as well.
Spanish papers (and the English ones as well) seem to believe that United are the favourites and actually there's a lot of sense in the story: Valencia need the money, Real and Barca went for other strikers, Villa is not against a move to England - why not?
Well, firstly, he's 28 and we weren't supposed to pay significant money for players over 26. Secondly, Fergie is unlikely to make such a major move in January, simply unlikely. He would be a fantastic acquisition though.
We are also interested, apparently, Palermo defender Simon Kjaer who is a great talent. With Rio's powers seemingly waning, he would be a fantastic signing as well but will Palermo part with him in January? No way but he's a realistic option for the summer.
Ajax forward Luis Suarez's agent said he hadn't heard a word from United about their alleged desire to sign his client. The young South American has tremendous skills but regards staying on his feet with the same contempt as Didier Drogba.
Cardiff full-back Adam Matthews will sign for Manchester United, that's for certain. Well, according to the papers it is, for Cardiff manager Dave Jones expressly denied that they had received any offers for the talented youngster.
The Edin Dzeko saga is still there, with the player refusing to rule out a January transfer as Wolfsburg are struggling to recapture their title-winning form in the Bundesliga. However, the Bosnian forward explained it on numerous occasions that were he to leave Germany he would choose Italy, more specifically AC Milan.
And the best one: Real Madrid schemer Guti (in my admittedly irrational and personal opinion, one of the most despisable footballers ever) is learning English which means he's on the brink of leaving Madrid for Manchester. A good laugh, this is.
